By comparison, getting healthy in Mexico is cheap. People only spend a 1/5 as much compared to the US for any given ailment.
Also, most Americans mention having a much better experience in Mexico than in the US. A major complaint about US healthcare is the lack of one-on-one attention. Gringos who receive Mexican healthcare note how much time their doctor spends with them. They felt like their doctor actually cared and listened. Americans report an astounding 90% satisfaction rate.
Vets, Uninsured, Can Visit Mexico As Medical Tourists, Saving Money in Ajijic
A large community of expats in Mexico is on the north shore of Mexico’s largest lake, Lake Chapala. This community pays on average:
– $20 USD for a doctor’s visit and
– $1,000 USD for insurance; that depends on age and overall health currently.
Many choose to keep insurance for emergencies with a high deductible. For minor treatments they pay out of pocket. They feel much safer knowing that if they require a major treatment that it wouldn’t bankrupt them.
Knowing that they can receive healthcare at reasonable rates, these American residents in Mexico are healthier and happier.
